which of the 2 is a better position for the levers? I used the straightedge as a reference point.
Thanks in advance.

I would say position 1, but go with whichever is more comfortable.

I'm closer to position 1.

position 1 was as flat as i could get the transition from the lever to the bar to be. i'll mess around more and see how flat i can get that transitions. now that i think of it, i think i can use some old tape and a trainer to see how the different positions feel.

its be a bit easier if both your pics were horizontal, but 1 looks much better.

I like 1 more, but I would still lower them a little bit.

after some research, i'm going with it a tad lower than position 1. should be done pretty soon

Haha, called it.

Don't forget to check on your ability to shift from the drops while out of the saddle. Has a lot to do with position of levers on bars, as well as bar rotation.

did a trainer session with it, and i think i'm actually going to switch bars. those are 44cm and just felt too wide. gonna try 41cm classic drops and 42cm compact drops.
